Rotary Club of Nelson County recognizes a non-Rotarian as a Paul Harris Fellow

The Rotary Club of Nelson County recently named Shelvia Hall as a Paul Harris Fellow. The club honored Shelvia for her devotion to the ideal of goodwill, peace and understanding, a goal shared by Rotarians. The award was presented by Rotary President Judy Smythers and the guest speaker that day, Ed Misker.

Shelvia was designated to receive this recognition as a special expression of appreciation from the club.  "A world of peace and goodwill comes closer to reality today as Shelvia becomes a Paul Harris Fellow," Judy said. "It is because of gifts like the one made in her honor that The Rotary Foundation is able to carry out an array of ideals  that achieve beneficial changes in our world: improved living conditions, increased food production, better education, wider availability of treatment and rehabilitation for the sick and disabled, new channels for the flow of international understanding, and brighter hopes for peace."

In becoming a Paul Harris Fellow, Shelvia Hall joins a remarkable company of persons throughout the world. 
Paul Harris said: “He who tries to find the good in others will be rewarded, for others will surely find the good in him. Of all the earth’s sad and lonesome creatures, the most helpless is he who loves not his fellowmen.”
